Millionaires On 'Millionaire Matchmaker' Not Millionaires, Apparently (VIDEO)

David Yontef, one of the contestants on Bravo's popular "Millionaire Matchmaker," says he has a little secret about the self-proclaimed millionaires on the show: they're not as rich as they claim. Eli Obus shot a video interview with him on Tuesday night that makes for a controversial unveiling.

We went to The Grace Hotel on Tuesday for the premiere of Robin Kassner's episode of "Millionaire Matchmaker," in which the so-called "plus-sized millionaire" (Patti Stanger dubs her a size 24 Jessica Simpson) courts a hunky plumber who is her junior by a decade. Cougaracity at its finest.

Kassner, an ebullient personality who founded Haute PR, seeks "a Jewish Matthew McConaughey" and flaunts the possibility of a grand life (complete with a Maserati and a Ducati) when trying to seal the deal with the young, toilet-hugging stud.

But let's turn this up a notch: Yontef claims that Kassner and half of the other contestants on the show aren't millionaires.

Yontef, CEO of Advertising Executives Inc., an executive recruitment firm for the pharmaceutical advertising industry, claims he owns a $5 million property with no mortgage and has an additional $1 million in cash. Other contestants, he claims are not so lucky.
